    YotaPhone Officially Announced; Includes e-Ink Second Display on Back


    Today's smartphones have really come a long way with vibrant and colorful high resolution displays, but there's one area they still lack; in bright sunlight it can be next to impossible to read text on them. The YotaPhone was just announced and the unique design of this phone aims to fix that. The YotaPhone basically includes a secondary e-Ink reader display on the back of the device. This monochrome e-Ink display not only makes it easy to read in any lighting condition, it also simply makes it easier to simply read text since it appears just like a book, magazine or newspaper.

    Both the main display and the e-Ink display are 4.3-inches. The regular LCD display has decent if not impressive specs with a 720p (1280 x 720) resolution. Here's a quick breakdown of the rest of the specs:
    • Dual Display - One 4.3-inch Color LCD 720P & One 4.3-inch Monochrome e-Ink rear display
    • 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4
    • 2GB of RAM
    • 13MP camera
    • 1,800mAh battery

    Here's a quote with some final details,

    Developers will also be able to create apps for the second display using APIs from Yota Devices. The YotaPhone is available for pre-order in Austria, France, Spain, and Germany for €499 ($678) and will hit another 20 markets by the end of the 1st quarter 2014. It will also be available in Russia (Yota’s home market) starting tomorrow for a price of 19,990 Russian Rubles ($602).
    What do you guys think of this intriguing concept?
